What are the chances your favorite pony was secretly a changeling all along?

Yeah, probably about one in one.

Thanks to Alexstrazsa for the totally boss cover art. Thanks to kits for being a remarkably good sport about this. If you haven't already, you should check out his excellent story for a decidedly less silly take on a changeling infiltration. The blame for this one, however, is all mine.

But I thought Rarity was phone. :fluttercry:

#3 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

SO MANY CHANGELINGS

#4 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

Oh god so much changeling.

#5 · 99w, 6d ago · 14 · ·

No Celestia, you are the changelings.

And then Celestia was Cadence.

#6 · 99w, 6d ago · 6 · ·

...but where is Luna?!  :raritydespair:

#7 · 99w, 6d ago · 2 · ·

Da fuq did i just read?

:EDIT:

Actually, let me rephrase that last sentace.

WHAT THE FLYING MOTHER FUCK DID I JUST FUCKING READ?!

Yea, i think thats it.

#8 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

Goodness gracious, how many back-stabbs and double-double crosses are there?!

I lost track...

#9 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

Wait...what the hell just happened? My brain hurts....

#10 · 99w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

HA HA HA HA HA HA!

The is awesome.

#11 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

Haha, Everypony's a changeling! Too bad Celestia, it's all lies. Wait so Applejack is the only real pony in Ponyville? :rainbowlaugh:

#12 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

Luna used her illusion magic to depose Celestia and take her place during the Nightmare War.

#13 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

Dafuq did I just read?

Kidding, I thought this was pretty funny.

#14 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

>>1190044

...Then Celestia is the real Luna? ...It all makes sense! Provided, of course, that the Moon itself is a changeling too.

#15 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

:rainbowhuh::rainbowhuh: i just read the whole thing  in verry confused just like the towns folk of ponyvill who's on what side, who's the idiot ruller who started this mindfuck did every changeling forget who is a changeling and was there really ponies:applejackunsure:

Celestia, my brain is melting!

#16 · 99w, 6d ago · 6 · ·

Entire team is Spy!

Wait, wrong IP...

Anyway, most enjoyably silly. Don't worry, Celestia, I'm sure the rest of Equestria isn't as changeling-infested as the increasingly ironically named Ponyville. That'd pretty much be impossible unless the things are impersonating individual blades of grass.

Also, I'm pretty sure I saw Luna in Silicon Dream Valley. Something about game testing...

#17 · 99w, 6d ago · 5 · ·

>>1190056

Close! The Moon is actually two changelings.

#18 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

>>1190073

To be fair, I always was a bit suspicious about why would it have not one, but two sides...

#19 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·
#20 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

:rainbowhuh: what did I just read

#21 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

Perfect, with all of the Ponyville cast distracted, MY time to rise is at hand! Or hoof. Or... thing with holes in it?

"Quivering ball of horse" will always be a favorite phrase of mine.

EVERYONE WAS PHONE

#24 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

My mind? Totally blown. Words cannot express the 'dafuqs' I am experiencing.

#25 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

My hurts brain :applejackconfused:

#26 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

O...kay...

You know it's a bad time when you need a flow chart to find out who's affiliated with whom.

A DOUBLE CHANGELING! A CHANGELING DISGUISED S A CHANGELING! INGENIOUS! :pinkiegasp:

....It actually wouldn't surprise me if ponies never actually existed the way this story is going :pinkiehappy:

#30 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

Hee, I thought about this very same idea when all the 'Pony X is secretly was a changeling' stories started showing up.

It even has the idea I was thinking of that only Celestia wasn't a changeling.

Of course, in mine, they all turned on Celestia and drained her love untils he died!  Then they realized they had no more love and died.  Then I finished it off with Discord breaking free, finding out everything was dead, and deciding to head to Detroit. :trollestia:

#31 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

OK OK OK... after King Chinling or whatever he is called told the secret about who the changeling of Shining armor was I lost track of everything I need a chart or something this is like keeping track of all of the family ties in the book "100 Años de Soledad" without a character sheet and genealogic tree, IT IS BUCKING IMPOSSIBLE.

Thumbs up by the way for the ridiculousness.

#33 · 99w, 6d ago · 3 · ·

Well, I just happen to have made this...

#34 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

...Yes? Is there something you changelings need? Like, an employment ledger, perhaps? Or maybe nametags or ID cards, that might help with all... this.

That was great.

#35 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

I'm okay with this. :derpytongue2:

#36 · 99w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

That's all I have to say on that.  Funniest thing I've read in a while.

#37 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

HA! :rainbowlaugh:

Poor Celestia. This was a fun read. :yay:

#38 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

Well, I guess now's as good a time to mention it as any:

I'm a changeling too.

#39 · 99w, 6d ago · 2 · ·

And thus the school-age fillies and colts of Ponyville elementary looked upon the remains of their town (except for Sweetie Belle) in horror. Those among their small numbers who were blank flanks earned their marks that day in the form of either a mighty 'W', a strong 'T', or the eternal 'F'. Scootaloo would later come to laugh at Applebloom for being an orphan.

...right before she reveled herself to be a changeling as well.

...so, yeah...I enjoyed it is what I'm saying :pinkiecrazy:

#40 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

NO Celestia should have been like the God of the changelings. Then luna should have showed up.. the real one and been like WHAT THE BUCK IS GOING ON HERE!!!!

#42 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

Saw the title and this is all that came to mind

#43 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

And then everyone was changelings.

#45 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

Then Celestia returns to Canterlot, finds everypony there is also a changeling, and visits every city and town where the same thing happens. Later (during a cider-fueled panic) she releases Discord, who takes one look at the situation and decides it's chaotic enough as is, and leaves to find some other reality to bother. :pinkiecrazy:

Out of other options, Celestia goes to the moon where Luna informs her that she knew about this all along, which is why she stayed there waiting for Celestia to catch on and join her.

Eventually, the changelings realize they're the only lifeform left in the world, and most of them die out except for those who learned how to live in friendship and love and so on on their own.

Then Hasbro shuts the whole thing down as they won't make any money selling a bunch of identical changeling toys once anyone realizes they are, in fact, identical.:twilightoops:

#46 · 99w, 6d ago · 13 · ·

NEW DEVELOPMENT: The last actual pony died centuries ago. Changelings have just been slowly replacing ponies, and nopony ever caught on because, hey, he's singing about friendship and tolerance! Changelings don't like those, right? Eventually faux-pony culture became a stereotype of actual pony culture. Vivid mane and coat colors became more pronounced as time went by (the pony brain is wired to associate bright color with trustworthiness), and eventually everypony had funky colored manes. Changelings started to get lazy, and stopped rendering separate hooves, GI tract, or genitalia.

tl;dr: evolution

Princess Celestia gasped and sank to her knees before curling into a quivering ball of horse.


MY SIDE HURTS






>>1190912 True... true

#48 · 99w, 6d ago · 5 · ·

>>1190056>>1190073 You both are wrong! Celestia is Luna who is still on the Moon and she has spend the last 1000 years replicating and living the life of Celestia on Equestria (aka the moon, because it's all an illusion). The Mane 6 is an illusion. The ponies are an illusion. The changlings are an illusion. Equestria is an illusion. And Celestia (aka Luna) is delirious.

#49 · 99w, 6d ago · · ·

So... What the hell where they feeding off of?

#50 · 99w, 6d ago · 2 · ·

So obviously, the best pony is really changeling.

Who is disguised as a changeling while pretending to be a changeling in the midst of masquerading as a changeling and has been a clever hoax of a changeling that is in fact a real changeling that's taking the place of the other changeling that was supposed to imagine being a changeling but failed because it still was a changeling but succeeded beacuse of it being a changeling which leads on to the prospect of replacing ponies with changelings-

Deeeeeeeeeeeep breeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaatttttttttthhhhhhhhhhhh...

I can go on forever. Why?

Because changeling is best pony that is really a changeling pretending to be a pony but since all ponies are changelings it is pretending to be a changeling but that cannot be because-
